    my 20month old throws some wild wobblies, she has a really short fuse and it mostly happens when something doesnt go her way (takes after me for sure). For example, she will be trying to get a doll out of her toy pram and it will get stuck. She will say "suck, suck....suckkkkk!!!!" meaning "stuck" and be almost in tears. When i help her and say it's ok, calm down, see dolly is out now. She will throw the doll and move onto something else.
    The other tantrums happen when she's tired, usually just before her morning nap time and every single evening from 4.30-6pm. Once she's had dinner, dh usually arrives home while shes having dinner, knows a shower happens after that, she's a differnt child Lol all smiles for dad! grrrr!!!
    It's embarrasing when she throws a wobbly when we are out because she does hit me and headbut me and has bit and scratched me.
    In public i say "owch, dont bite mummy it hurts" and i just let her cry it out as we make our way to leave asap!
    At home, i no longer try to console her, as i get attacked. I tell her she is ok, everything is ok and try to mover her attention to something else. Outside play really helps, she loves being outdoors.
    I dont pay attention to tantrums as it's undesirable behaviour and i will not fuel it by giving her TLC.

    I don't have much experience with tantrums, but the few times the kids have I started throwing one too. She stopped and looked and we just started laughing. I actually got it from a commercial on tv quite a few years back.

    Anyway, it has worked for us a couple of times...couldn't hurt to try maybe?!?

    Goodluck!

    I find you are best to ignore them as long as he is not in danger. They soon work out that their tantrums dont get any attention. Once he has calmed down you can calmly talk, offer a hug etc
